Nike Air Max Light "Newark Eagles"

Back in 1946, the Newark Eagles were at the top of Negro League Baseball with their World Series victory over the Kansas City Monarchs in a historic 7 game series. Although the team would only be around for another two years, they surely did make history having produced the first African-American player in the American League side of Major League Baseball, Larry Doby. 62 years after their championship win, Nike is honoring the Newark Eagles in another pack of Negro League inspired sneakers. This version of the Air Max Light features the Eagle’s logo on both the heel and insole as well as traditional Newark colors with embossed leather and gradient panels. These shoes are now available at Size?.

Vans Legends Pack - Steve Caballero

Vans will be releasing a legends pack honoring Bay Area native and Powell Peralta pro Steve Caballero. The pack will consist of three classic models: a SK8 Hi, Era, and what would a pack be without Steve’s signature shoe, the Half Cab.

Wacko Maria Army Jackets

Wacko Maria Army Jackets

Everybody’s favorite brand these days seems to be Wacko Maria, brought to light by Tet’s Honeyee blog or by hipster’s guidebook Huge mag. We’ve seen a strong South Western/Blues/Mexican theme until now but of course we had to see some Militaria coming. After all, Army jackets are an integral part of true American fashion, adorned by patriotic loners from Steve McQueen, to John Rambo (First Blood not Rambo pt. 100) and Travis Bickle (Taxi Driver). These jackets are slightly different from the played out M-65 and we see pre-Vietnam garments including the M-56’s forefather the M-51 which has a full velcro strip down the front. Wacko Maria keeps it relevant with the latin Catholic touch and prints the back of the jackets with its trademark Maria icon. Available now at Ark.
